DescriptionA Trizantine sample, submitted here as reference for this really fine weave - in contrast to the normal weaving method (Byzantine with nested extra rings) it's built from a basis Harvest Moon chain (rings' AR of 5.6 to 5.7), with added Box/Byz 'cages' thereafter, made with an AR of 5.1 - so no continuous change between two different ring containers while weaving is needed that could lead to errors.
And this AR combination seems to be the minimum and imho also VERY near the optimum AR combination for the weave, as the added rings pull the basis chain exactly tight enough that neighboring Harvest Moon cells' single rings (that become the 'triplet' center ones) just barely touch and are also just not more load-bearing, and so the added Box rings don't flop around as seen so often on too-high AR Byzantine chains - even the original weave submitter mentioned already, that lower-AR 'wing' rings are of advantage to avoid that problem. Decide yourself, whether you like the 'open' look of my AR combination, or at least the not-so-error-prone weaving method...
